Creativity is the complement to Problem Solving, and is about generating innovations or ideas which can then be honed through the problem-solving process.
The first few steps focus on the individual’s confidence in imagining different situations and sharing their ideas.
The focus is then on generating ideas – using a clear brief, making improvements to something that already exists and combining concepts.
Individuals then apply creativity in the context of their work and their wider life. They can build off this to develop ideas using tools like mind mapping, questioning, and considering different perspectives.
The most advanced steps focus on building effective innovation in group settings and by seeking out varied experiences and stimuli. Finally, individuals support others to innovate, by sharing tools, identifying the right tools for the situation and through coaching.
